RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff on Wednesday, Nov. 22 in memory and respect of the Chesapeake community after last year’s shooting at Walmart.
Six people died in the shooting when a manager opened fire with a handgun right before an employee meeting in Nov. 2022.
In memory and respect of the victims, their families, and the Chesapeake community, Gov. Glenn Youngkin ordered all flags to be lowered at sunrise on Wednesday, Nov. 22, and remain at half-staff until sunset.
The Office of the Governor said the order applies to USA flags and the Commonwealth of Virginia flags over the state Capitol and all local, state, and federal buildings and grounds in the Commonwealth.
